Overcoming the World’s Desires

God the Father invites us to abide in Him through His Son, Jesus. As we abide, we discover that in Christ we have the power to overcome sin and Satan in our lives. The word’s system with all of its trappings is no match to the surpassing joy we find in Jesus. The desires and attractions that woo us to go back into the darkness of sin will soon pass away. In Christ, we realize that we are forgiven, we are made new, we are reborn into a life led by the Spirit of God. Through Jesus, we can resist the desires of the flesh, desires of the eyes and the pride of life.
